03 oil leaking from the back of motor

Pulled in to the house last night and instantly found oil dripping from under the trans / motor . First thought was rear main but looks like its coming from higher up .. Anybody know where this might be coming from? Help

It could be the bedplate seal. It is a common issue with the 6.0, but it is not a cheap or easy fix. Good luck.

I think its coming from up higher then the bedplate seal. It looks like its coming from the back of the head or the back of the turbo area . I started to pull the turbo but couldnt get the rear turbo mounting bolt off ..

More than likely it's your ICP sensor leaking - I've replaced many on the 03'-04' 6.0l.

Yup, its probably your ICP sensor, no need to pull your turbo to replace it.
